Eating Healthy at School
Many of the changes being made in Pulaski Community School District cafeterias are part of a larger national trend spurred by the federal Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act that was signed into law in 2010. With its passage, regulations on American school lunches were changed for the first time in more than 10 years, and focused on making lunches healthier for students by implementing changes.
Eating Healthy at Home
While school district's across the country are making efforts serve food that is more healthy and nutritious for students, it's easy for family members to take simple steps to make meals served at home healthier as well! This is especially important since one-in-three American children are at risk of type two diabetes and heart problems because they are over-weight and/or obese while only 15 percent of Wisconsin students get the recommended servings of fruit and vegetables each day.
